We know you’re all dreaming about exotic trips this summer… Bali, Rio, Indianapolis… Yes! Indianapolis—the location of the Scentsy Family Reunion 2013! This is an event you will not want to miss—we’ve got Kelly Clarkson coming, for pete’s sake. But let’s face it: traveling can be expensive. To help lighten the load on your wallet, we’ve put together a list of ideas on how to travel on a budget with the hope of seeing ALL of our Scentsy Family Consultants in July! Use these ideas to make it to Reunion or to plan an affordable summer family vacation.
Give “Combine-and-Save” a Whole New Meaning…
Traveling in groups is not only a safer way to travel, you can also save a lot of money. Look into package deals for group airfare and hotel rooms or split meals with a friend. Frequenting a nearby grocery store for meals instead of eating out helps too.
While you may be able to find some goo ...

Over the past three weeks a few lucky members of the Scentsy Family had the opportunity to travel through Europe for Scentsy World Tour—the Spring Sprint across the pond! Events were held in Dublin, Ireland; Manchester, UK; and Kassel, Germany. All three events were a great success (and a TON of fun!) thanks to our wonderful Consultants.
This year’s World Tour meetings were all about sharing tips on sponsoring, team building and training. We discovered that sometimes you have to take a step back and evaluate where you are now before you can move towards the future at full throttle. We asked everyone who attended to create a vision board of where they are in life and in their businesses and, importantly, where they would like be.
This exercise helped Consultants distinguish between the different motivations their team members have for their Scentsy businesses and how to best support each other based on these motivations and goals.

At the August 2012 Light It Up Convention in Las Vegas, hundreds of Scentsy Family Consultants and their guests had an opportunity to add their two cents to the Scentsy Fragrance Spring lineup by participating in a fragrance evaluation.

Scentsy Convention 2012 is coming right up, and everyone here at Scentsy Family is incredibly excited to share all of the amazing things we have planned with you!
One of the many great things up our sleeve is Backstage Pass—an amazing social media extravaganza designed to get a buzz going like you’ve never experienced (er, uh, a social media buzz, that is).
I’m not going to lie to you: There is a lot of information on this blog. But bear with me, as I’ve tried to create an easy-to-follow layout for you. From what to expect, to what online platforms we’ll be using, to some helpful links on how to use them. We want you fully prepared for this event!

It’s Wednesday night. Wednesday, July 25, to be exact. And there you are:
Yep, another night of sitcoms and a finger food dinner. Pass me a soda, will you?
Thursday morning comes, and what are you doing?
Juggling work and errands, of course. And don’t forget—your son’s soccer team has practice tonight, so make dinner early!
It’s finally Friday, and you are so ready for the weekend.
But you’ve got to make it through a full day of work first…
Is this what July 25-27 looks like to you?
Well I’m here to tell you: It doesn’t have to be this way!
Rather than spend Wednesday evening on the couch, spend it here:
That’s right—at the Las Vegas Convention Center, enjoying the bright lights, music, live entertainment, and the chance to hear from Heidi and Orville Thompson, Scentsy’s President and CEO and learn how to make the most out of your Scentsy business. It’s Vegas, and the night is young, ...

With Convention coming up in just over four weeks, I thought it might be fun to look back at the fragrances Consultants voted for during Convention 2011 and share what they selected to bring into the current fragrance product line. Those who participated (and those who read this blog post) will remember that we had 28 fragrances available for sampling and each participant received an evaluation sheet to rank each scent. We had more than 4,000 attendees go through the evaluation room last year and this year we’re hoping to see every person who attends Convention participate in this process. This year’s Convention fragrance sampling room will be 300% larger and right on the main floor. The fragrances Consultants will be sampling next month in Las Vegas will become part of the Spring/ Summer 2013 product offering.
Here is the list of fragrances Consultants chose for the current line, with the number that was listed on the container/table next to each sample:
1. &n ...

Scentsy’s first-ever European Convention was held in London, England’s Selsdon Park last week—Thursday, August 18 and Friday, August 19. It was a smashing success, with just under 50 attendees and two days of excitement as Heidi and Orville unveiled our new Region 2 products and shared breaking Scentsy news for Scentsy Europe.
Consultants gather for dinner at the Scentsy Convention in South Croydon.
After the training, giveaways, and Orville and Heidi’s keynotes, attendees at Scentsy’s European Convention got a good understanding of what Scentsy is all about. Here, UK Consultants share a meal with Heidi and Orville and their daughter, Sarah.

I feel motivated! Scentsy’s 2011 Stampede Convention was my third Convention and what a great experience it turned out to be. Convention has that effect on me, and every year I leave feeling more motivated than the year before. I was thrilled to meet so many Scentsy Consultants. This year we had somewhere around 4,000 Consultants go through the fragrance evaluation room compared to about 1,400 Consultants in 2010. The evaluation room is a key step in a lengthy (though enjoyable) process of narrowing down the best fragrances possible for the upcoming Spring/Summer catalog. In just a few days, we will have tallied all your feedback electronically, and those of you who took the 17 minutes (or so) to join us will have helped decide which fragrances become parts of Scentsy’s fragrance line.
Involving Consultants in this process was Heidi’s idea and what a great decision it has proved to be. Dozens of people are involved in getting those fra ...

The proverbial “cat” is out of the bag! Scentsy Solid Perfume has finally gone public, and those fortunate enough to attend convention will leave with full retail versions of all five fragrances. Fine fragrance is a new direction for Scentsy—one I am confident will be enjoyed by Consultants and customers alike. So let’s start with a basic question: What is the difference between “fine” fragrance and “home” fragrance?
Fine fragrance is wearable. It is designed with your skin in mind (cosmetic grade). You will have a unique experience using it because your skin will modify the scent in a personal or individual way. This is largely the result of your skin pH (which is a measurement of acidity vs. alkalinity) interacting with the fine fragrance. Keep in mind, even your shampoo or favorite hand lotion will “layer” to some extent with any fine fragrance you wear. Home fragrance, on the other hand, such as the oils used in our wax ...

Scentsy Convention 2011 stampeded in with a rumbling ROAR last night, as 10,000 Scentsy Consultants entered downtown Fort Worth for a private concert, held especially for our Consultants at the Stockyards. The evening began with a fresh new country band, Gloriana, and after listening to them perform, it was easy to see why they were named the 2010 Academy of Country Music's Top New Vocal Group.
Gloriana’s performance warmed up the crowd and prepared them for Clint Black’s entrance as he set the stage on FIRE and played to the “Silly Scentsy” Consultants (as he called them) for over an hour and a half.

I have been to many concerts in my life—from country, rock, alternative to operas and concert halls with amazing classical performances. But last night was different. There is a distinct energy within a group of Scentsy Consultants and emplo ...
